PM360 asked Sunny White, Founder + CEO, Xavier Creative House, about the place she just can’t stop returning to.
My Odyssey: If you’re a busy entrepreneur or executive looking for a much-needed break to recharge, The Lodge at Woodloch is the best-kept secret around. It’s a beautiful, serene resort located in the picturesque Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania on 500 acres of wooded land with a private lake. This unique and special place is designed to nourish your mind, body, and spirit, and it’s where I go to reflect on my long-term goals, company mission, and essential business decisions. The atmosphere is perfect for overcoming burnout, lack of focus, or creative blocks, and is also great for an annual board meeting or corporate retreat.
My Recommendation: The Lodge at Woodloch is the place to experience a meal with all of your senses and none of the guilt. The Chef’s Kitchen offers a variety of cooking and baking demonstrations, chef-hosted dinners, and seasonal events. You can even dine at an elevated tree-top restaurant and bar, which is quite a unique experience! If you’re interested in exploring your creative side, there are over 35 daily classes, from watercolor painting to dot mandala lessons as well as plenty of other activities like wine tasting, fat-tire bikes, and birdwatching—there’s something for everyone.
